The Fowlerville School District proposed a bond to go to vote in May of 2018. They are using the money to improve many of the schools building. They are a focusing on repairs for “Boilers, classrooms, instructional technology, and athletic fields”, according to a report from WHMI. Yet, the biggest project was replacing the shingle roof on Kreeger Elementary that was long due for repair.
CEI started the project in the middle of May. It is their first shingle roof project in over 10 years, making this an exciting project. The job included a full shingle tear off and replacement, as well as an addition of custom ridge vents fabricated by CEI’s sheet metal shop. Kreeger is a good change and gives the crews something different to work on. In the last 4 weeks, CEI has completed about half the reroof. They are still pushing forward as we begin to craft the ridge vents. The project is set to be done by August.

In past years, CEI had installed a green roof onto the Kresge Business library. This zero floor green roof got an update along with the renovation of the rest of the building during the construction of Ross. It was reinstalled with plant material, repaired and updated to look great with the new building.
CEI was additionally contracted for the multiple elevation roofs at the Ross School. It was constructed of EPDM full tapered insulation and featured metal panels done by CEI’s very own sheet metal shop. Later in the project, Walbridge and other subcontractors looked to CEI for extra help on other scopes of work. The sheet metal shop made metal wall panels for the interior and exterior of the building.
